The photos of Talamati speak for themselves - check out their page on Facebook and the many glowing reviews. The game viewing here is second-to-none and the hide overlooking the waterhole (only 75 yards or so away) is frequently full up even thought there are only 13 cottages in the camp. It's the only camp I've been to where you... More

Talamati Bush Camp is located near a waterhole that has animals visiting it to quench their thirst. The waterhole was quickly drying up but the day we visited you could see all sorts of animals visiting the hole. The camp has 2 viewing points (with decent covered seating facilities) that was great for the visitors like us. Me and my... More

Lovely bushcamp with great hide overlooking waterhole, unfortunately whilst we were there the area was affected by the drought and little wildlife about. Great hide overlooking the waterhole. nice accomodation with comfortable sofas on the veranda. Chalet well equipped and better furnished than most Kruger accomodation.

Saw lots of game around the camp - can't wait for the next trip ! We went down to one of the bigger camps with shops, restaurants etc - too many people - so... More

A little bit run down since last year, but as always a great spot in the Kruger. Even better is the regular people who book a year in advance that you keep on meeting there. It has almost become a family reunion. There is no shop, with Orpen being the closest - so make sure you buy all you need... More

the game viewing from the camp hide is second to none , just fantastic. we watched about 20 Hyena trying to attack a small rhino and then a Leopard which came to drink at the water hole was chased by the Hyena. The chalets are basic but very comfortable.There are only 15units in this camp so it is very quiet... More

One of our favourite camps, quiet and spacious, with lovely modern cottages. the hides and waterhole are great for wildlife viewing - it is worth the drive to get here and the roads are quiet with plenty of wildlife to see.

This was our second stop in Kruger after Olifants. We had a large bungalow with 2 ensuite bedrooms which was great for our party. The hides in the camp offer good viewing of all types of animals, especially the one overlooking the waterhole. We saw rhino, hyenas, elephants, buffalo, impala, waterbuck, kudu, diker and many more but especially we saw... More
